|Summary||0000302: check_apt doesn't/shouldn't upgrade per default|
a) check_apt already doesn't upgrade per default:
The check_apt script's help says:
[Default] Perform an upgrade. If an optional OPTS argument is provided,
apt-get will be run with these command line options instead of the
default (-o 'Debug::NoLocking=true' -s -qq).
Note that you may be required to have root privileges if you do not use
the default options.
One should perhaps add a note, the (as far as I understood) this won't do anything (per default), even as root (!!!), given that the "-s" (simulate) option is set.
b) IMHO, the default should be to just check (i.e. the --no-upgrade option to check_apt).
Most people run check_apt as non-root anyway,.. and even if run as root, then (as noted above in (b)) nothing happens right now anyway.

I would write the patches, if the ideas themselves are accepted.
This issue is loosely related to what I proposed just now in bug 0000303.
Regarding the (per default) simulated upgrade,... is there any advantage with doing this? I mean instead of just checking?
The issue as described above was actually invalid.
I corrected it and forwarded it to:
Please close the issue here.
